Cycle Canada's Cabot Trail

Cabot Trail Bicycle Tour

Cycle Canada's Cabot Trial is supported bicycle tour from Moncton, New Brunswick to Baddeck, Nova Scotia.

Starting to rideCycle Canada's Cabot Trail

Cyclists arrive at our convenient starting place of Moncton, New Brunswick where there will be a Orientation session the evening before the first day's ride. Your accommodation is covered that night as well as the night of the final riding day in Baddeck.

 

Departing Moncton we ride via Shediac and the big Lobster to the Confederation Bridge. A shuttle services this crossing for cyclists and after a 2 day warmup ride we arrive at Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, the birthplace of Canadian Confederation. On the ride to Charlottetown there is a side trip to the birthplace of Lucy Maud Montgomery, whose Anne of Green Gables has become an enduring symbol of the Canadian spirit. We have a rest day in Charlottetown and time to visit the place where the Fathers of Confederation gathered to create the Dominion of Canada on July 1, 1867. You could also stop by Cows, perhaps Canada's best known ice cream shop.

On to Cape BretonCabot Trail Elevation

We leave P.E.I. by ferry to Nova Scotia and then cross the causeway to Cape Breton, famous for its Celtic music, its hospitality and its scenery. We're now on the world famous Cabot Trail. You will see the scenery at its most spectacular from lookoffs along the Trail. We do a clockwise loop to reach Baddeck, where Alexander Graham Bell's summer home is now a museum and where Canada's first airplane, the Silver Dart, had its maiden flight a century ago. We'll have a celebration dinner in Baddeck as new and old friends head their separate ways.
